Too Far? Or Not Far Enough?

So the current craze in the beauty industry is the Pizza palette by Glamlite Cosmetics. The indie brand took on a very unique concept of actually creating a palette shaped like a pizza and made complete with the cheese and sauce aesthetic as well.While I personally enjoy a unique concept, I am torn in my opinion of the palette.
Launched on December 12, the Pizza palette materialized from the love of pizza; most people enjoy pizza and if you don’t… I don’t want to know you (just kidding). Within 48 hours of its launch, the palette sold out with many orders still sitting in limbo, unlucky customers having to wait until a restock occurred.
There are 18 shades in the Pizza palette, each shade named after a popular topping; Ham, pineapple, bacon, and black olives, to name a few. The palette costs $40 but you can “get an extra large” (ha ha) for $55 to include to limited edition/PR box. A few of the shades caught my attention and I enjoy watching tutorials done with this palette, but I just can’t bring myself to spend the money on this trend.
2018 was filled with food-inspired makeup like the Tutti Frutti collection from Too Faced that littered many a timeline on Instagram but this Pizza palette from Glamlite is a unique way to end the year. I like the concept of the palette and the shades perfectly corresponds to each ingredient you’d see on an actual pizza. I personally can’t bring myself to buy a palette I would only use a couple times before moving on.
